Kinnie Soda

On our trip to Malta, I picked up a can of Kinnie, a locally made soda made from Bitter Oranges, and some herbal flavorings – my first mistake, was not drinking it until we left Malta, on our way to Italy, because it was so good. My second mistake was only buying one. I was craving it the rest of the trip. When I got back I was able to find a similar drink, which was good but not as good as the Kinnie. San Pellegrino Chinotto. Let me try to describe the taste.. Kind of a sour orange taste, and the aftertaste was very green and somewhat hard to describe.. Like anise, mint and basil all rolled into one. Impossible to find in the states, but im still looking ofcourse. If I dont find it in a few weeks, I’ll probably treat myself to a very large quantity online (gotta buy in volume, its so expensive to ship!)
